Introduction Intellectual property rights foster innovation. But if, as it surely does, "intellectual property" means not just intellectual property rules-the law of patents, copyrights, trademarks, designs, trade secrets, and unfair competition-but also intellectual property institutions-the courts, police, regulatory agencies, and collecting soc- ties that administer these rules-what are the respective roles of intellectual property rules and institutions in fostering creativity? And, to what extent do forces outside intellectual property rules and institutions-economics, culture, politics, history-also contribute to innovation? Is it possible that these other factors so overwhelm the impact of intellectual property regimes that it is futile to expect adjustments in intellectual property rules and institutions to alter patterns of inno- tion and, ultimately, economic development?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Aus den Rezensionen:

"... Insgesamt stellt der Sammelband ein beeindruckendes UEbersichtswerk auf hohem Niveau dar. Seinem Anspruch, die Dynamiken des Immaterialguterrechtsschutzes in Asien eingehend aufzuzeigen, ist es vollumfanglich gerecht geworden ... ist das Werk fur Entscheidungstrager, Wissenschaftler und Praktiker in einem beginnenden asiatischen Zeitalter unverzichtbar ..." (Andrea Wechsler, in: Zeitschrift fur Geistiges Eigentum / Intellectual Property Journal, 2011, Vol. 3, S. 352f.)
